Remarks about BPS Strings of 6D (1,0) SCFTs

abstract

We discuss recent progresses in understanding the BPS strings of six-dimensional SCFTs. Along the way we review some interesting interconnections among our results, twisted compactifications of 4d $$\mathcal{N}=2$$ theories, topological strings, and five-dimensional Nekrasov partition functions.
